This is a subject that has always been near and dear to my heart. To begin with I would like to remind everyone to a time not too long ago when cell phones did not exist and we still managed to have an amazing social life. Do not get me wrong I do very much appreciate all that the cell phone has brought into our lives but are we addicted? Do you ever take time off? Leave it at home for a few hours a day or in the car when you go to the beach. It has become such an extension of ourselves that we never seem to let it go. So I wanted to urge you to make small adjustments and disconnect from it sometimes. I even created a fun facebook page a few years ago that could probably use a little more love and attention Electronic Free Sundays
Another really important thing to consider is EMF’s and Blue Light….. Did you know that your cell phone emits Electro Magnetic Frequency. This is a type of radiation that our electronic devices emit. Please feel free to google this term and find your own research on the matter. I have found plenty of valuable information out there.
We have come across a brand that has made a cell phone cover to protect you from EMF. After many hours of research on the market this is the brand I have most faith in. We look forward to them stepping up their sustainability aspects but for now I think our own health is most important. I myself have tested the phone cover with a EMF reader and you do see a difference and it does provide EMF protection. I also got the blue light screen protector and have since cracked that screen, kept my actual phone out of harms way and am ordering another.
Safe Sleeve is the name of the brand I have use over the last few months and I am truly happy with my case. I got the one that is removable so I can attach it to a magnet in my car and not use my cell phone while driving. Another very important aspect when safety is concerned. I feel really good about talking hands free when I am on the road.
I would like you to do your own research about EMF’s and the effect they can have. I have done mine and am convinced that small steps to protect ourselves are essential. Another thing I highly recommend is to switch off your WIFI at night and keep your electronic devices out of your bedroom. That way you will get a better nights rest and you can always invest in an old fashioned alarm clock if you are using it for that. If you do need to sleep near your phone another option is to turn it to aeroplane mode when you go to bed.
If you do not have a EMF protector I highly recommend to use headphones or the speaker function on your handheld device.
Thank you for reading and please share any knowledge you may have on the subject as we are always willing and excited to learn new things.
P.S Don’t forget to leave the phone outside of the room you sleep in, and even better turn off your wifi rooter at night!
